Meaning of AMBER SUPPRESSOR

 
Biology Dictionary
 
 Definition: A tRNA molecule which suppresses amber mutations because it has mutated to recognize the amber codon UAG (which normally signals that the translation of mRNA into an amino acid chain should stop) as a signal for inserting whatever amino acid it carries into the chain. As a result, it can prevent the amino acid chain from ending before it is completed.
